Recipe Thursday: Oscar Edition

The Oscars are a great excuse to invite a few friends over and whip up something extra special. Whether you want to keep things casual with finger foods, or concoct a menu worthy of a golden statuette, it’s always fun to get creative and make something inspired by the awards themselves. Food & Wine has some spot-on best picture-themed recipe ideas for this year’s nominated films. Unlike the cheesier movie-themed dishes, some of these recipes you would actually want to make again. Think Smoky Glazed Asparagus, Spaghetti with Lamb, Tomato and Cumin Sauce and Chocolate Wafers with Ginger, Fennel and Sea Salt – Yum.

It goes without saying that Champagne is a must while watching the Oscars, but for the red wine drinkers in the room, a glossy and smooth Grenache is an excellent offering. Deux Punx’s "Tejada Vineyard" Grenache is a lighter style with aromatic notes of juicy strawberry and sweet herbs, perfect for sipping while munching on bites and appetizers. It can even be slightly chilled alongside the Champagne, bringing a unique and festive aperitif idea to the party.
